“Revolutionary” EV Charging Station — Volt Point

Giulio Barbieri The Revolution in the EV Charging Stations' DesignGiulio Barbieri S.p.A. has announced that it is about to release what it claims is the first electric vehicle charging station that isn’t anchored to the ground but is resistant to theft and vandalism. Say who?

The name of the charging station is Volt Point (which is presumably in reference to the Chevy Volt, the most popular plug-in electric vehicle on the market to date).

“The case is completely made of reinforced concrete, therefore its installation requires neither foundations and it can be easily moved to another location. In addition it guarantees a great resistance to vandalism and theft,” a press release about the product noted.

Here’s more from Giulio Barbieri S.p.A. on the Volt Point:

The versatile ev charging unit is provided in different versions: for the recharge of electric bikes, pedelecs, e-scooters or for the recharge of electric cars in both the standard or rapid charging mode.

VOLT POINT for e-bikes is the only charging station equipped with lockers, where the user can leave the battery or/and the battery charger for safekeeping until the end of the charging period, avoiding the risk of theft or damage.

The basic version of the new charging unit is accessible thanks to a RFID system, which authorizes the identified user to charge the vehicle. In addition a touchscreen display guides the user through the charging phases. On demand the charging station can be equipped with a more sophisticated remote control system, that can manage the payment, find and book online the charging station and other services available on requirement.

The stainless steel front panel represents a great opportunity for the operator to personalise the charging station with advertisements or logos.

Last but not least there is the possibility to install on the top of the column an advertising panel or an extra interactive touchscreen display to offer citizens a useful and attractive city information service point.
